    Trying to connect with as many people as I can and would love to meet up with anyone who is getting their advanced certification.

    I'll be there with a few of my colleagues. 2 of them are going out for certifications, I couldn't make it work this year with the sessions I wanted to attend and trade show appointments, so my certification will be expiring, hopefully next year I can make it all work out better, I wish they offered the test more frequently over the course of the 4 days! Arriving Monday, leaving Thursday late afternoon.

    I'll be taking the Intermediate level training camp and certifying on Wednesday in Cvent Event Management. I certified last year in #CrowdCompass.​

    I know I've asked this before and going off topic...

    I am a committee of one.  How does a certification benefit me? Not likely I'm going to make more money. :)
    We only use event management and OnArrival.

    @Brenda Ainsburg BTW, I registered for your breakout session.

    Hi Steven-

    I never looked at as a way to get a "raise" or anything like that. I viewed it more as knowledge factor and the ability to "show" that I have the knowledge. It gives people more confidence in what you say because you have the certification behind your name. :-)

    My coworker and I will be taking the first level of certification. We are a two person team that are self taught and have been using Cvent for a little under a year. We are hoping to use the knowledge gained from the certification to run our events more efficiently. I would love to connect with anyone who has taken the first level of certification to get your thoughts and advice on preparing.

    Question for @Rachel Huggins, do you know if the new  Flex Designer is included on the ​​​​​​​#Certification test? I was studying all the Cvent #Event(Classic) #Classic materials. I just downloaded the event guide from the helpful "you are registered to take certification at #CventCONNECT ​​​​​​" emails and one of the videos points to a newer recording that includes the Flex Designer. Doh! I haven't dug into the #Registration designer because I thought the test materials hadn't been updated on #FLEX yet!

    So do I stay up late every night and study for the Flex Designer info? I'm building out my LAST Classic event right now. I don't want to study Flex unless I HAVE to!
